"A device to provide structural stability to the pelvis prior to implanting the definitive acetabular articular component. Such a device may be required in bony defect situations. This may be the case in revision surgery, but also in primary surgery where pelvic discontinuity arises secondary to bony loss, e.g. tumour or post-traumatic reconstructions."
Umbrella term including revision arthroplasty, where components are exchanged, and com- plementary surgery where further arthroplasty components are added due to the natu- ral progression of the disease.
- Revision cup
Monobloc or modular acetabulum component with added design characteristics for bridging acetabular bone defects or for added bony fixation (e.g. additional screw hole).
- Revision surgery
Surgery referring to the removal and, if necessary, the replacement of previously implanted hip or knee arthroplasty components. Revision surgery may or may not be followed by re-implantation of new arthroplasty components during the same operation (one-stage revision) or at a later date (two-stage revision) and is interpreted as failure of the index arthroplasty. In contrast, the reoperation of a knee replacement with patellofemoral-resurfacing as a consequence of progressive patellofemoral arthrosis is not interpreted as failure of the initial arthroplasty. Also refer to "Reoperation" and "Complementary surgery".
- Routine data
Data stored by public health insurance companies, in particular for administrative and bill- ing purposes, in accordance with §301 SGB V (German Social Code, Book V). This data, which includes ICD codes for main and secondary diagnoses as well as OPS codes for treatments, is delivered to the EPRD together with the vital status of the participating patients twice a year. The data is used to supplement the case documentation submitted directly to the registry from participating hospitals.
